For any interested or in proximity, CSX SD40-2 #8888 will be in tow from Russell, KY to Huntington on May 21 for its last movement---as it is now--- on mainline rails.  
 
The iconic locomotive had been in storage at Corbin, Ky since 2009 with a major failure and is now slated for retirement. We may see a reincarnation of sorts for it has been earmarked as fodder for the SD40-3 rebuild program once it resumes. Of course, that is always subject to change.

Good luck, Curtis
 
Hopefully it will be in a location that you can see it.
